Renowned Ghanaian Gospel singer, ACP Kofi Sarpong has urged Ghanaians to maintain the peace they are currently enjoying, stressing the detrimental effects of war on a nation’s economy and societal fabric. 

Reflecting on his experience at a peacekeeping camp in Sudan, the crooner emphasized the devastating consequences of armed conflict, urging Ghanaians to cherish and safeguard the peace they currently enjoy. 

In an interview with Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, the ‘First Love’ hitmaker highlighted how war erodes law and order, leading to a breakdown in accountability and escalating violence.

“I have been at a peace-keeping camp in Sudan and I have seen what war can do. It can devastate a whole nation; let’s be thankful for the peace we have,” he said.

The multiple award-winning gospel singer cum police officer further shared a harrowing incident of murder and displacement witnessed during times of conflict, underscoring the urgent need for peace.  Kofi Sarpong made known how citizens murder each other because they knew they were not accountable to anyone, during a period of war.

“I closed from work one day and two guys were arguing. Before I realized one of them had removed an AK47 and shot the other. And with this, he would not be accountable to anybody because there was a war ongoing.”

The musician then encouraged citizens to remain vigilant against anything that could incite violence, emphasizing the importance of collective efforts to maintain stability and prosperity. He further stated that people stayed in places where human beings did not deserve to live because their peaceful homes were no longer safe.

“Some people who stayed in camps were rich but due to war, they had to stay where people did not deserve to live in very terrible conditions.”

He encouraged Ghanaians to maintain peace and avoid anything that can incite violence,” he averred.
